Hawk's 2009 Playstation GOTY thread:MVP edition

6 replies 16 views Edited Mar 1, 2010

Intro: Well, here it is folks. As promised, here's my annual GOTY awards. It's taken awhile for me to sort through what I had, before making my personal picks. I do this every year, because I think this is a good time for us to make our individual picks. It's the end of the year and I think that it's time to reflect on what was, before focusing on what will be (I.E: next year).

 

Ok here are the rules:

 

1) Your picks have to be games released this year. Not Fallout 3, which was a 2008 release. Don't name a 2008 game, even if you just bought it this year. Pick 2009 released games only.

 

2) All picks must be a playstation game. Whether it's PS3, PSP, PS2, PSN arcade, PSP Mini, PS1 classic etc.

 

3) You must pick games that you've played. You don't have to have beaten the game, but you must have at least played some of the games that you list.

 

4) You can write in your own catagories. I'll provide a group of catagories (see below), but if you think of some more, feel free to write a few in.

 

5) There can be runner-up picks (2nd best games) in each catagory and there can be ties. However, there can not be a 3-way tie. 2-way ties only.

 

6) Finally, take your time. List whatever games you want and if you can't think of all of them now, feel free to come back and edit in your picks later. 

 

For review, here's what I thought were the best GOTM from Jan-Nov:

 

Jan: Skate 2

Feb: Killzone 2

March: Resident evil 5

April: Riddick:AODA

May: Infamous

June: Prototype

July: Not a PS game, however NCAA Football 10 was the runner-up

August: Batman:AA

Sept: Not a PS game, however Dirt2 and NFS:smileyfrustrated:hift tied for runner-up

Oct: Uncharted 2

Nov: Call of duty:MW2

 


 

Ok, here are the catagories:

OK, that's fine. Come back when you have more time to fill in some of the other catagories.

 

...I know, I know. It's a long list that'll take a while to fill in. So, take your time.
